    Hello Mesut,

    A fantastic composition with smart use of a shallow dof. The woman shuffling along the path adds a strong focal point. The yellow green leaves on the branch at right contrast well with the hazy blue bg. Tfs!

    Hi John

    You had perfect weather with clear blue skies and bright sunshine. Good sharpness and the bridge across the canal links the 2 sides together. Tfs!

    Hello Kari,

    I like the textures in the snow and the curving road leading the eye towards the bg and adding perspective. Good sharpness and the tall pine tree balances the composition. Tfs!

    Hello Malgo,

    It looks like the fluorescent light has given a green tint in the fg. Easy to fix using the laso and adding magenta. Just noticed the 2nd man in the bg, who balances the composition with the man seated at left. Tfs!

    Hello Jorge,

    I am always amazed to see banana trees growing in cold climates much further north or south than their usual range. Usually they are sheltered from the cold winds. But sometimes even in sub topical areas frost can be a problem as depicted here. The effect is obvious in the lower slopes where the cold air has sunk down from the upper hillside, which remains green. Tfs!

    Good depth and layering, showing both the bg palace and the fg ladies in their rainbow dresses and headscarves. The hats and umbrellas indicate fierce sunlight and heat. Tfs!

    Ciao Costantino

    I only got a very rushed look at this town when travelling by bus from Meteora to Igoumenitsa. Nice to slow things down and have more than a second to contemplate this tranquil lake scene. Tfs!

    Hello Bev,

    Well framed and composed placing the horizon lines slightly off centre. Good sharpness and the rocky seaweed encrusted shore provides an interesting fg with the cathedral at left dominating the town and adding a focal point. Tfs!

    Looks like an Italian Wall Lizard.

    This arched catwalk between buildings reminds me of the Bridge of Sighs in Venice. Good colour, sharpness and saturation. The flagstone street adds perspective. Nice warm cold color contrasts in the bg between the rust red door and sky blue window shutters. Tfs!

    Hello Malgo,

    As much as I like the quintessential camels in the workshops, these landscapes show the true nature of the arid desert. Good colour and sharpness in this trio. Tfs!
